We shouldn't encourage too many people to run pre-release, assuming
its stability is about the same as frozen's stability. The reason
frozen is not upgraded to stable is because it has not been tested.
In fact, the first few weeks after frozen is created, frozen is often
*very* unstable, with many broken packages upgraded regularly.
